A Ride into the Future
For-hire rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft have shaken up the taxi-service industry. In the past 5 years alone, rideshare services have made an impressive impact in San Diego, much to the dismay of local cab companies. Rideshare services use online platforms to connect passengers with private drivers, typically through a mobile application. Initially, many of these services were banned as unlicensed taxi companies but have overcome the legalities and are now common place nationwide. California was the first state to legalize rideshare services in 2013. Unlike taxis, which are heavily regulated at the city and county levels, rideshare services fall under the newly created category of “transportation network companies.”
Like any vehicle operating on our vast roadways, ride-share vehicles are susceptible to being involved in motor vehicle collisions. As of 2015, ride-share drivers were required to maintain dedicated insurance policies to cover their passengers in case of an accident or other incident. However, car accidents are only one of the ways a rideshare passenger may have their rights infringed. There have been cases of rideshare drivers assaulting passengers, and even stealing from them as well. If you are a rideshare passenger, it is important to exercise your rights if your rights have been violated. If you’ve been in an accident, sexually assaulted, or a victim of theft by a rideshare driver, contact us immediately for a free, no obligation consultation.
